|Yep, the trail is definitely underwater!|
|Not only underwater, but the creek is flowing swiftly.|
Friday, storms dumped rain farther north. It was obvious that there had been flash floods through the Salado Creek Greenway. What we saw Saturday morning was left as the water receded.
Some walkers found a gravel/mud trail higher up on the near bank and decided to take it from Lady Bird Johnson Community Park. They wanted to see if they could hook up with the main trail farther down.
Bob and I decided to drive to Tobin Park (farther south) and walk south from there. Good decision. We were able to do a 10K walk on Salado Creek Greenway Trail without encountering any low creek crossings blocked by the remnants of the flood. However, we saw where the floodwaters had come through and left debris high up from where the course of the river flowed.
|Breaking news: South Texas is GREEN in July.|
|And there's water in the creek.|
|Seriously...turn around, don't drown.|
|Beautiful green from all the rain we've had.|
|Debris deposited by flood.|
|More debris in the woods.|
|Me on the trail.|
|So much water where usually there isn't much.|
|The water is still flowing strong.|
|Snowy egret fishing|
|Debris stuck on a tree.|
|Pretty yard at a glassblowing studio|

In the afternoon we went to Buckhorn Museum/Texas Ranger Museum. I'll review that in my next blog.
